LA County, though I'm sure the numbers are falling year to year.

Bay Area has it's share as well.

seems to be some cost of living, a major degree of self segregation/co-mingling with ones own culture, etc.

there is also a noted race war between blacks and mostly mexican/mexican sponsored gangs in so cal.

as the mexicans move in to the low rent areas, the successful blacks have been moving into more middle class areas, or just moving out of state entirely. whether they can afford to stay or go generally depends on if they own property here or not, much like other middle class folks in my experience.

i believe there are a few high rent black areas in LA, but i'm not sure which. long beach and lakewood have(in my experience, dont know numbers) a solid amount of middle class blacks, but not in a specific community, rather meshed in with other cultures in the area.

Los Angeles county, Alameda county and Contra Costa
county areas probably have the most. Sacramento area
has a significant population as well (South Sac, Natomas,
Elk Grove). I forgot to mention Solano County area, and
the Riverside area.
